Houston has had three 500-year floods in the past three years: the Memorial Day Floods of 2015, the Tax Day Flood of 2016, and Hurricane Harvey, which, like Allison, stalled over the city and flooded us with a year’s worth of rain in a 72-hour period.

On August 27th, 2017, we were one of the thousands of families in Houston that flooded due to the releasing of water from the dams and the constant rain from Harvey.

We lived in a one-story home, just half a mile away from the Barker Dam. We lost all our belongings and two cars, but we didn’t lose hope. Hope that the city will come up with solutions, and that our communities will come together to rebuild.

“Changed” reveals the story of ten families whose lives were altered permanently after the storm. They explore ways to heal and rebuild after the devastating loss of their homes.

From a pregnant mom who delivers early due to the stress of the storm; to the death of a loved one who drowned in their own home, “Changed” asks questions that demand an answer from the City of Houston. Changes must be made so that this tragedy doesn’t happen again. I interview Harris County Flood Control District Meteorologist Jeff Lindner as well as Mayor Sylvester Turner and ask them why west Houston was not warned, why we are not getting funds needed to rebuild our lives, and what is being done to ensure our safety in the future.
